The tidewater is in a great location in PCB. We stayed 5 nights and had a condo on the 25th floor. Unfortunately this was an real issue for us as the elevators are a real issue here. Had I known this prior to booking I would have changed locations. The wifi in our unit was modest at best with most... More

I am currently on vacation here.This by far is the worst resort I have ever encountered. The pictures of the room were very deceiving. We believed we were booking an ocean front room for 6. Yes sleeping wise there were enough beds. The room was very small. Room badly needed a fresh coat of paint. We were responsible for cleaning... More

We had read about the elevator issue prior to booking so we booked a unit on the lowest possible floor. This was a great decision because we have had to walk the stairs every trip. I would estimate the average wait time for an elevator between 8am-9pm would easily be 20-30 minutes. People were outraged at the wait. Check in... More

We stayed here last summer,and wanted to stay here when we came back this July;however they were booked. I love how you get to see and pick the room you are staying in. Our room was on the 11th floor a 2 bedroom. It was clean,updated,and very nice. The only downfall was the parking garage;it was low. The pool and... More

We taken two to three vacations per year for many years. We have stayed in many places & NEVER experienced the constant issue of catching an elevator. We walked our entire luggage & necessities up the stairs each & every time rather than stand & wait for who knows how long. Thankfully we stayed on the fourth rather than the... More

We stayed in unit 3018 which is on the 30th floor. Spectacular view nice decor and furniture. As for the elevators we must be very lucky no issues. Listened to folks gripe about them in the parking garage elevator went from level 2 to 30 in ten minutes includes wait to get on. Here for softball tournament most of the... More

The room was great. The beach is great. The problem is you spend most of your time standing waiting on an elevator. On Saturday and Sunday 99% of people are checking in and out and moving luggage (since there are no bellmen). You park in the garage and the only crossover is on the second floor, where the carts are... More

Unit was on the 3rd floor. We had 5 five people stay comfortably in this unit. It has a beautiful view even though it is a side unit. Very nice furniture and accessories. As far as the room, there is not much to complain about except there were only 1 hanger in each closet. The condo complex as a whole... More

It took at least an hour to unload our car and get to the room. We were on the 27th floor so we could not take the stairs. Parking in the deck was awful. The elevators were even worse. At times it was just easier to not go anywhere then to deal with the elevators. The tiki bar closed at... More

Well, the reason we went back to Tidewater was the location, (the location really sells this place, it's close to everything), our unit was once again very nice, we had a huge balcony, the staff is very nice, we love the pools, the coffee shop, the tiki bar, the pool parties, and most of all, the beach! But we did... More
